This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This series of segments features me, Christian Einfeldt, giving a keynote presentation to the OpenOffice.org Conference in Berlin in 2004.

First, arrogance is the kiss of death to a free open source project, and I am reluctant to do anything that makes it look as if this film or this segment is about me, which it's...

He's funny, he's written a really useful OpenOffice.org manual for newbies, and he's the father of a baby girl who, at only a few months after her birth, managed to build her own website. Or so he claims . I smell a rat. In this particular segment, The DTP will be many, many...
